our story

sun protection with the goodness of the tropics to help your skin thrive

skin-loving suncare you can trust

At Hawaiian Tropic, we make skin-loving, Hawaiian-inspired suncare that helps enhance the beauty in yourself and the world every day. We offer a variety of products to cover all your suncare needs.

reducing our impact on the planet

We’ve always held a special place in our heart for beaches and the majesty that comes with them – including the coral reefs and marine life! While some resort areas have already banned the use of oxybenzone and octinoxate due to the potential damage they may have on the reefs, we pioneered the removal of these ingredients from our formulas to help protect our oceans.

sustainable suncare

When it comes to our packaging, we continuously look for ways to improve our efforts relative to how we can reduce materials, use more recycled/recyclable material, and help you in your recycling efforts. As we look ahead, we will continue to make decisions and innovate, keeping your need sand the potential impact ingredients can have on the environment top of mind.

commitment to cruelty-free

Part of our commitment to you is our commitment to the world around us and all its inhabitants, which is why we never test on animals, and refuse to sell our products in countries where animal testing is required. Hawaiian Tropic is a proud recipient of the PETA Cruelty-Free certification, which means we do not conduct or commission any animal tests on ingredients, formulations, or finished products.
